I first picked up a fully manual film SLR camera as a 13 year old, just because my relatives thought it would be nice for a young man to have a hobby. The first few months reading books and learning the basics seemed like a lot of work, but I still remember those books.

My passion for photography has only increased over the years. The advent of digital cameras and my love for hiking and landscape photography has fueled that desire. Capturing the essence of a place is always my first priority; hoping that the process portrayed a fresh perspective is gravy.
